migrants storm


THIS is the moment dozens of migrants stormed a tourist-packed beach in southern Spain. 

Holidaymakers watched in shock as the semi-inflatable Zodiac carrying nearly 50 Moroccans – including at least 19 children – washed up near the luxury Melia hotel on the Costa de la Luz.

The migrants can be seen running into the hills and cliffs behind the beach.

Several teenagers were assisted by workers from nearby restaurants and hotels while two people are believe to have been arrested.

The incident happened around 3.30pm on Sunday at Barrosa Beach.
